It is not one of Kant's least achievements that after a long clarification process, he restores the dimension of going beyond to the eroded concept and at the same time gives it a new aspect on the basis of his own theoretical concerns. Despite certain fluctuations, which are not surprising for a concept with such a long tradition, the eroded notion of the transcendental regains with Kant the clarity of a philosophical concept. In accord with the Copernican turn, the Kantian concept combines the ontological with the epistemological meaning.

In order to distinguish it from medeival transcendental philosophy, one can speak of critical transcendental philosophy. Kant develops it first with regard to reason as a cognitive faculty.

The first Critique could thus be named more exactly "Critique of Pure Speculative Reason" (B xxii).
